Gibson ES-330 Sunburst w/Bigsby

£3295.00 Delivery Next Day if ordered before 3pm

While the world had gone mad for Seth Lover’s PAF humbucker pickup in the 50s, all thick and thunderous, there were still enough players out there in the 60s demanding a brighter tone. Especially considering the proliferation of Fenders, Gibson players of blues and country still wanted a bit of jangle in their life, and to admirably cater for this, Gibson introduced the ES-330 in 1959 the year after the flagship 335 was introduced, equipping its semi-hollow body with a very lovely set of P-90 single coils. The example we have here is a sunburst TD (Thinline, Double pickup), with a P-90 at the neck and the bridge, allowing the player a delicious choice of tones, bright, brighter, or blindingly bright all at the flick of a switch. There are a few changes: tuners have been replaced, and we're pretty sure the Bigsby is retro fitted and the pots have also been replaced, but it certainly does shine a bright light. Playing it is a joy of course. Roll back the tone, and it goes all warm, so if you did want to jazz it up a bit, the 330 still has the tone in the locker. This 1967 piece is a beautiful example with mother of pearl block inlays and chrome dog-ear covers on the pickups. Complete with Hard Case.
